it out of, is this about -- this isn't about the obama administration. we have to remember that this is a function of our government, this is a function of the three branches of government to make sure that there are these checks and balances. i mean, you know, some people were talking about this earlier this week. it's, this is a memo for president obama or is this a memo for dick cheney? that's not the way we should be thinking about this. we need to be thinking about this in terms of our constitution and what we need to do to ensure that there are checks and balances, that there is a process in place and that's what senator wyden has been talking about and pressing for. so i think the administration should be prepared for many more questions on this until there is some degree of satisfaction. we may not in the public get full satisfaction but certainly in a confidential classified manner, those senators who have oversight responsibility have to feel more comfortable with the information that they are getting. >> let's talk about satisfaction. it seems that senators or re

way to adjudicate the possibilities of what war means to the obama administration? >> well, i think that, i think that is absolutely right, it has been a continuation of the bush administration policies, and yes, administrations always try to push the outer bounds of the authority. but one thank is clear is that the laws of war have not changed even if the practice has changed. there are really three reasons that a country can, a state can use force outside of its borders. one, if it is the victim of an armed attack and second if the u.n. security council authorizes it, and three, assisting a state that requests it, and we have stretched that boundary as well far beyond what the laws of war call for. so i think that there is a very serious question about this question of perpetual war, but we should remember historically in the 20th century, the u.s. was at war virtually every decade of the 20th century, so if we think of ourselves as peaceful country that does not engage in war, we need to rethink that. >> that is right. david, i want to ask this question, because where we were bef

the other obama administration has been, officials have been. i expect by now he'll admit it was a terrorist attack which would be a welcome change. look, i think he's hoping to be asked about drones because he doesn't want to be asked uncomfortable questions about other issues. and my fear is that the drones, is going to divert attention away from benghazi that need to be explored and divert attention away from issues like quite frankly. john brennan was the height of the bush administration the enhanced interrogation program. so he was literally the principal consumer of intelligence for khalid shaikh mohammed and others. if he claims he was opposed to it why didn't he speak out and quite frankly why aren't we interrogating people. when you vaporize a terrorist with a drone you vaporize their intelligence in their brain. we're killing everybody on drones and happening on his watch and ought to be answering questions about that. >> alisyn: and simon, you know how washington works, and things are not always as they seem at first blush. is it as we hear marc sort of saying, leaked to the new
